31 Bits: Wedding Fashion With Heart

I was introduced to this company a few weeks ago by my sister and was immediately blown away. Not only by their super cute hand made accessories but by everything they represent. 31 Bits is a company which was started a few years ago by a girl who saw enormous potential in the midst of great need. When Kallie Dovel traveled to Uganda a few years ago she met a group of women who made these beautiful beads out of paper. After spending time in their homes and hearing their stories, Kallie knew there had to be a way to give opportunities to her new friends. She returned to the US with a plan. Read her complete story here.  

31 Bits is now a full blown socially minded business that not only offers girls trendy hand made accessories to add to their fashion collections, but with every item sold also gives internally displaced women in Northern Uganda an opportunity to counter poverty. Using fashion and design to empower women to rise above poverty. I love it! And I foresee myself receiving a few Christmas gifts from their site, from me to me haha!

Recently they've even added a wedding collection! Can you say loooove! Any brides interested in viewing their entire wedding line can do so HERE and who knows, perhaps your wedding can serve as a small opportunity to also give back. :)

Have a beautiful Tuesday!

XOXO
